Default Max Effort C/J

I posted last week about drifting forward on 100% effort cleans but had no video to post. I did maxes for week 4 of my first Bulgarian cycle today (busy weekend, won't have time on Sat.) Anyhow, here is video of my new max of 210# (pr by 5#). Is the horrible rounding of my upper back a normal phenomenon? I get up on the toes a bit as well. There's a video of 135# as well for critique of a typical starting warm up weight...Be as critical as possible please and let me know what I should do to fix any problems. http://www.vimeo.com/3487103http://w...eo.com/3487348

The forward jumping is just because you're lifting that bar straight up - the moment you separate it from the floor, shift back onto your heels more and stay there. the bar should move up and back slightly.
